A very interesting day out in less than ideal weather with a sea running against us and preventing us taking the route to Dartmouth. An appetite created for lunch by being hands on to the rigging and ropes and I was glad I took my sailing clothes with me. Allows one to reflect on the C19th trawlermen's lives in a genuine way.

Thank you! We are delighted that you enjoyed your short adventure on Pilgrim. We agree it must have been a very tough life as a fisherman. We hope you will come again and bring some better sailing weather!

We booked our day sailing at short notice, and were really glad that we did. It waa a lovely way to spend some time. Even when there wasn't a whole lot of wind.

During the day ww got to have a go at hoisting the sails, tacking and stearing.

The food was pretty tastey and we werw made to feel very welcome by the crew.

It is well worth the money.

Pilgrim is an absolutely stunning restoration of a Brixham trawler with a fascinating history (yes, I read the book on Pilgrim's history and I would recommend it!). Very well thought out inside and lots of space. There is even enough room and water in the tanks for showers! Pure luxury!! Having sailed a variety of heritage boats for various length trips, I can say that Pilgrim is way up there with the very best.

Skipper Brendon and First mate Julie were brilliant. They were extremely knowledgeable and friendly. The volunteer crew were also fantastic and knew their stuff. If you have never sailed before, you will feel confident and learn quickly on this boat. Brendon will accommodate any specific requests in terms of sailing and asked us before we started whether we wanted the focus of our trip to be on sailing or the airshow (we were on the Torbay airshow weekend trip).

And now to the food. Julie is an incredible chef! She made us the most fantastic food in a small galley with two induction rings, one oven and a microwave! AMAZING! We had roast dinner with all the trimmings on the Sunday night and gorgeous halloumi wraps for a lunch one day. We had trifle for pudding with a little (actually quite large) surprise of rum! And pear pastries with chocolate surprise in on another day.

I would 110% recommend sailing on Pilgrim whether you sail every week or have never sailed at all. She is a wonderful boat that so many people are working hard to keep sailing. It is an inspiring project and she is an asset to all those involved. Keep up the awesome work folks!
